An Eventful Weekend

The circus celebrated Labor Day with a weekend full of fun events and even a swimming trip to the local quarry.  A few days ago we put on a roadside Tiny Circus show in front of Elsewhere as part of Downtown Fridays in Greensboro.  Passers-by could watch all sorts of Tiny Circus histories, then come inside to help create our latest work in progress: The History of Dust.
Other Elsewherians took part in Downtown Fridays as well, making it a fun, high energy evening for everyone.

Resident artists challenged each other in super wheelie ball, an original game created by Ben Garthus.
Dust continued forming the next day, and was helped along by hands big and small at a free stop motion Playshop held at Elsewhere.  As you can see, we’re surrounded by books, and so its only natural that books play a big role in telling the History of Dust.  Using books as building blocks we are currently constructing a one-of-a-kind, book bound time machine!  As all the dust keeps piling up we look forward to sharing more updates with you soon.
